RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed way quicker than a hard disk, because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to check out your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, because the information is lost once the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and may change based upon what the other customers on the same web server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, however, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even if you don't use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

The physical memory that you will get with every single virtual private server that we offer is guaranteed and shall be available consistently even when you do not use it for a long period of time. Every VPS account offers set system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from the rest of the accounts on the physical web server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we shall not allot some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, to guarantee that it won't run out of memory. In this way, there will always be free RAM if you choose to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless functioning of the physical hosting server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

All of our dedicated server solutions feature a massive amount of physical memory, that'll allow you to run really heavy web apps with no problems. We use brand new and extensively tested hardware components when we install a new hosting server to make certain that there will not be any troubles of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you acquire a dedicated server, we will make sure that you get the best functionality possible from the configuration that you have chosen. Even if we determine that you're not using the full capacity of the machine, we shall not alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that'll be readily available will always be the same. You may take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing Control Panel at any time.
